We're going to see the new John Cusack movie 2012.
Hey, I like big budget disaster flicks.
Towering Inferno? I'm there. Poseidon Adventure? Sure. Deep Impact? Oh hell yes (But not Armageddon, you've got to have some standards). Deep Impact is quite possibly my favorite disaster movie, evah, well, next to ID4, that is.
And speaking of Armageddon, big budget disaster flicks lately tend to be showcases for special effects, say like the excretable The Day After Tomorrow, great special effects, idiot plot, ridiculous science, and bad acting but it was Oscar material personified compared to some, say like War of the Worlds (Christ, I really, really hoped the martians would vaporize Dakota Fanning, really just kill her and eat her already. Hey overall the movie was fun, especially that flaming train scene and the ferry crossing, but the actors were just friggin' obnoxious tools).
I don't have any high expectations when it comes to 2012, but I really want to see that scene where New York slides into the ocean on crumpling tectonic plates. Oh baby. I don't give much credence (OK, none) to the whole ZOMG! THE WORLD IS GONNA END IN 2012! CUZ THE MAYANS SAID SO! thing but I expect the movie will be fun.
Full report upon my return from Anchorage, unless an unforeseen disaster befalls us on the way back.
You? What's your favorite disaster flick?
